While Ashton pipes have a well justified reputation for creating English traditional shapes (with just enough individualism to announce that a machine had no part in the shaping process), on occasion, Bill would toss something very cool out of left field. (Remember the Urchin?). From out of this park's left field (let's say the one inhabited by the "Green Monster"), comes this singular Ashton take on the bent Apple, and in the less-seen Sovereign finish. Play ball!
